EPL TOP SCORER: WHO GOES HOME WITH THE BOOT? HERE IS HOW IT IS DECIDED

Unlike the world cup where the golden boot is decided by assists if a number of scorers are level, the premier league instead shares it between the players.

The first time players shared the golden boot was in 1997-1998 season and it was between Chris Sutton, Michael Owen and Dion Dublin and then again in 1998-99 when jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink, Michael Owen and Dwight Yorke shared the spoils.

And yet again as Manchester City Become the 2018-2019 English Champion in a row by clinching the Premier Leaque title for a second time straight, Pierre-emerick Aubameyang, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, all three won the EPL golden boot.

Aubameyang and mane’s final day double brought them level with last year’s winner salah on 22 goals, while Sergio Aguero finished just one back on 21.

Salah finished with the highest tally of assists – 8- but, unlike at the world cup, if two players are tied on goals, the award is shared rather than determined by other factors.

Mohamed Salah had a very interesting goal scoring season with a run of 22 goals, 8 assists, 144 minutes per goal.

Like Salah, Pierre-emerick aubameyang presence in the Arsenal sqad consistently provided the goal threat for unai emery’s side, despite their see-sawing form. He had a run of 22 goals, 5 assists, 132 minutes per goal.

After scoring five goals in the first four games, Sadio mane only scored twice in the next 10 games, despite the reds continued success.

But in the second half of the season, mane came into a fantastic series of form, scoring nine goals in nine games and rightfully winning a spot in the premier league team of the season. He had a toal run of 22 goals, 1 assist, 150 minutes per goal.

Meanwhile City’s Sergio Aguero finished the season with 21 goals, 8 assists, 119 minutes per goal

The premier league golden boot has gone to the wire with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all finishing level on 22 goals.
